    I know this question is commonly asked and frequently answered, but I really want to know how I can get more followers. I’ve heard suggestions of having a theme. I usually tweet about my life and random things, but I love tweeting about pop culture for both Bollywood and Hollywood, I also make a ton of Indian jokes(; So, I guess that would be the closest thing to a theme I have. So, what are some suggestions on how I can get more followers with such a theme?

    I have noticed that some of my friends on facebook post a status, and then at the end of the status, they use a # with a word that describes the status. What exactly is this?

  9. The directions don’t make sense. Is it just endless reading of facebook posts? Or am I supposed to do something?

  10. I have an instagram but compared to my friends I have almost no followers. I understand that a lot of people share each others profiles and get followers like that but that just hasn’t worked out for me. Any suggestions? Oh and the account is @Youngster_Joey79 if any of you were interested in following. (:

    I have a Facebook but I’ve been thinking about switching over to another social site. I don’t know much about the Twitter, but it sounds more secure & private far as I’ve heard.

    For example, when someone uses a hashtag on facebook and someone may reply, “#hashtagsarefortwitter” or “#keepthehashtagsontwitter”. Or for example when someone uses the word “ain’t” and someone may reply, “‘Ain’t’ ain’t a word.”

  14. I have an account on instagram called @summer_countdown_ Its just a bunch of ideas for summer and ive had it for a couple months now and I still don’t have as many followers as I would like (89). I’ve gotten shoutouts from people, and use lots of hashtags, but I still don’t have a lot of followers and I think its a pretty good account, idk maybe not. Check it out though.

    So any good ideas? Thanks! 🙂 Oh and follow meeee: @summer_countdown_

  15. I’ve noticed hashtags on the ends of some Facebook update posts from friends. What do they do?

    I figured since every time I turn on the TV I see the Facebook or Twitter logo or random hashtags and I was just wondering if every single social network just disappeared completely for a week, what would happen?

    BQ: How many social network accounts do you currently have?

  17. I can understand why people use it on Twitter but it’s not necessary on Facebook.

    I see people putting “#sobored or #lovinglife, etc…
    And excuse the word “this” in my question. lol

  18. Facebook isn’t twitter. What’s the point?
